LG Electronics Inc.'s (066570.SE) third-quarter operating profit likely rose 4.3% on year to 781.10 billion Korean won ($655.1 million), the South Korean consumer-electronics maker said in a preliminary earnings statement.
LG estimates third-quarter revenue rose to KRW15.699 trillion from KRW15.427 trillion in 3Q a year earlier, it said Monday.
The revenue estimate is lower than the KRW15.847 trillion forecast compiled by FactSet in a poll of analysts.
LG's full third-quarter results are due in late October.
